Hi
I'm finding this rhinestone malarky a bit of a chore to get it all together, so please can anyone tell me where I can find the stencil material here in the UK, all the suppliers seem to be in the USA or Canada and the shipping price and duty make it very expensive so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Bob

Thanks Stitch Up, looks like the very thing I'm after, a step closer to rhinestone t shirts and other stuff

Cheers Bob

Don't let the youtube videos fool you, it's not as easy as they make it out to be ;-)

Not to start with anyways, lol

I'm sure I've got a lot of mistakes to make but I'll give it a go, my main concern is that I have all the correct stuff to start with

It's not so much making mistakes, it's all about the weeding etc, it's very very time consuming til you get the hang of it. And you need to make sure your cutter will cut down to 3.1mm circles and will cut the thickness of the substrate you're going to use.

Hi Kaz
Thanks for the advice, xpres are usually good at sending free samples, I've emailed them to ask if they would send me a sample to try out, if it works out I'll then buy the software, so fingers crossed as I don't want to spend money on software only to find the stencils won't cut in my machine

Noooo, don't buy the software from xpres, I can point you in the direction of another software package that is really easy to use, and a fraction of the price :-)

Will PM the details to you

http://www.artzi.co.uk/acatalog/rhinestone-stencils.html this is good for A4 size stencil, it works great in cameo, i use 5 and double cut, simply peel of backing after stick to back of a tray, run over firmly with hand then quickly rip off and its weeded just like that with 99% holes empty.
